Giving more help to the homeless
When Michael Bradley first heard about Boston Health Care for the Homeless on the radio, he used his Giving Account to make a one-time grant recommendation to the charity. But after visiting the nonprofit, where he saw the team in action and meeting the patients who benefit from their compassionate care, he deepened his commitment to the cause.
Breaking the cycle of loss
Turning the loss of a loved one into something positive was the goal when Todd and Michelle Buelow established the Matt Tunno Make a Difference Memorial Fund. In their work at the Charlotte Rescue Mission, they are fulfilling their personal mission to help others change their lives.
“Needs don’t go away just because a virus is out there—they multiply. To have [volunteers] keep showing up is affirmation to me of who we are as an organization, and who we are as a people. For me, it’s a miracle.”
Executive Director, Sister Jose Women’s Center
“We arrived in this country with almost nothing, and it has been so good to us. We now have more than most people in the world, and my passion for giving comes from helping the less fortunate.”
"Our motivation is to make small investments anywhere we can that make the world a better place. That’s really the goal. We’re not giving enough to have major impact ourselves, but we’re part of a larger movement."
“You can't stop grieving for a mate or a child. But by giving in their name you're doing something that makes you proud.”
“People don't understand they don't have to give huge amounts. If everybody gave a little bit, it would be a whole lot.”
